I am brimming with excitement,
And I wonder how much for her this news meant,
It is one of those things that she has always longed for,
And I know she must be over the moon for sure,

This year she will be going for her school expedition,
An outing with friends full of fun and action,
However there is just one hitch,
For this trip her mama she won’t be able to ditch,

I am sure there will be more trips such as this,
Where she can truly enjoy the independence bliss,
For that my dear I need you to be a bit more fit,
Then you can fly away like the swift
